The February Varsity Project: Panama Mission Trip

Varsity FBC is in year three of advanced friendship bracelet making. Our team includes 45 girls from around HSE and across the Midwest. One of our goals is to provide opportunities for these girls to partner together to do small things with great love. Each month I give them a project where they can make bracelets for a cause. Together we can make a bigger impact than if we were trying to do it on our own.

This is Cassidy. She loves people, loves Jesus and loves the world in big, audacious, bold kinds of ways. This past summer Cassidy and I hiked Wilderness together and for 6 days I got a front row seat to her perseverance, drive, humor, compassion for others and heart for all the God has created. She is phenomenal. 

It wasn't a surprise when Cassidy decided to go spend part of next summer serving. She told us, "I have the incredible opportunity to travel to Panama this summer to tell children, women in prisons and refugees about our boy Jesus! We have a few days where we will be spending time playing with kids on the streets. It would be super cool while having that moment with those kids to also be able to give them a friendship bracelet. Hopefully it will serve as a reminder of what they learned about Jesus and his love for them."

Bracelets this month were made by Lauren Quigley, Erin Williams, Abby Hummels, Sarah Wright, Jenna Jenkins, Hadley Hendricks and Livie Costes.
